Our core Program is designed for overweight children ages 7-13 and their parents or caregivers. Internationally, MEND designs programs that target different age groups and weight categories.


In the UK and Australia, MEND 2-4 is a primary prevention program for young children of any weight and their parents or caregivers. It helps families learn how to make healthier lifestyle choices so their children get the best possible start in life. The UK also offers MEND 5-7, a targeted intervention program for 5-7 year-olds above a healthy weight and their parents or caregivers. Additionally, MEND is developing an intervention to help new Moms return to a healthy weight.

MEND Programs for different age groups will be available in the US in the near future.
